Property description

Cardinal House Lodge - Cardinal House Lodge offers a large screened porch that wraps around 2 sides of the building and provides space to dine, sleep, or watch the river. A large circular fireplace offers additional gathering opportunities in an open family room setting. The cabin will sleep 8 to 12 comfortably. The cabin has 3 bedrooms. There are also 2 twin beds in view of the fireplace, a sleeper couch, and cots are available. The cabin has 1 bath with shower and 1 1/2 bathroom. The kitchen is fully equipped and features a Vulcan stove, huge butcher-block prep table, exterior gas and charcoal grills, indoor and outdoor dining areas, and a riverside campfire circle.

The cabin is adapted from a 1950's church camp called Camp Merry Ledges. The Camp is constructed of rustic redwood and douglas fir and provides the perfect setting for couples, families, fishermen, and outdoor groups looking for a river retreat. This cabin is the perfect retreat for a river and nature lovers.


We are bordered by the Blue River and public lands: Enjoy easy access to the Blue River. You are nicely situated halfway between 2 public access points. Access points can be arranged for river trips of varying lengths. Bring your own boats or rent boats from a nearby livery.

The section of the river where Cardinal House Lodge is not where they run the rental canoes.

Fishermen ABSOLUTELY love fishing on our section of the river. You can slide into the river at the lodge and float for trips downstream of 3, 5, 10 or more miles. Many access points lie downstream of us.

The Blue River is renowned for it's cleanliness and naturalness. It abounds with wildlife.

Harrison Crawford State Forest, O'Bannon Woods State Park, Patoka Lake, Hoosier National Forest, and the Ohio River are all within 15 minutes of us. That means there is a lot of Hiking, Biking, Hunting, Fishing, and backpacking awaiting you.

Gambling, night life, and shopping abound: We are only 40 minutes from 2 different Casinos. Louisville is about 40 minutes away. French Lick is about 50 minutes away. Corydon is Indiana's 1st state capital and has a lot of things going on.

Scenic Drives and Historic Tourism : We are located right on the Ohio River Scenic ByWay, HWY 62. Route 66 is a few miles away. These roads offer roadside picnicking, amazing vistas, and roads canopied by living trees. You can explore for days and not see the same road twice.
